Lapping Up Lacoste, France!

Sunday, October 7th, 2012

Chateau Chic!

Extensively renovated by fashion designer Pierre Cardin, Lacoste, France's historic Chateau de Lacoste is infamous for being the home of the Marquis de Sade back in the late 1700s. The chateau sits high above the tiny village of Lacoste in Provence.

Gang:

A few weeks back when John and I were bopping about the Provence region of southern France we paid a visit to the tiny and wildly charming hill town of Lacoste. Lacoste is picture perfect, largely thanks to the ministrations of fashion designer Pierre Cardin who has renovated much of the town, including its fabled chateau, once home to the infamous Marquis de Sade.

Lacoste boasts stunning vistas that overlook the Grand Luberon Mountains and the equally quaint village of Bonnieux that perches across the valley. The town is all windy streets and artists’ studios: The town packs in the crowds in July during the annual festival that sees performances of world-class theater, opera, and music.

The highlight of our visit was the tour of the Chateau de Lacoste, the 18th-century home of the Marquis de Sade that has been largely renovated from ruins by Pierre Cardin. The chateau boasts Cardin’s furniture collection as well as arresting metal statues of animals scattered about the ramparts. John and I adored the furnishings, and the vistas were astonishing.

Here’s a little tour!

Don't Be Cagey!

A contemporary sculpture of the Marquis de Sade sits outside the chateau. Genius!

Sofa City!

John and I loved this novel grouping within the chateau that includes two elegant sofas and an Indian-styled armchair. There's nothing better than an eclectic, far-flung arrangement of furnishings, n'est-ce pas?

Sitting Pretty!

The Chateau de Lacoste features Pierre Cardin's eclectic furniture collection, including this terrific grouping. I especially liked the wood lampshades in this vignette.

What a Beast!

Amazing metal sculptures of animals dot the grounds of the Chateau de Lacoste. Pierre Cardin has helped transform the sleepy village of Lacoste into an arts mecca.

Love Amongst the Ruins!

The chateau, while largely renovated, still has its crumbling moments, including this stunning view onto the nearby valleys and mountains.

Put Some Utter-ly Fabulous in Your Shutters!

Sunday, September 23rd, 2012

Green with Envy!

John and I spotted these delicious pistachio-green shutters in the charming Provencal town of Eygalieres. See what some colorful shutters--and a painted front door--can do to the facade of your home...

Gang:

John and I are gamboling about Provence, France… Don’t you just love that word “gamboling?” We certainly do. Provence is so lovely, and the folks are so much nicer than those jaded Parisians with whom I am up to here…

But more on the Parisian poubelle in another blog.

As John and I have skipped from Avignon to Gordes, Menerbes, and Les Baux, we have taken in so many wonderful architectural details that have inspired us.

Take Provencal shutters, for instance.

Does you home boast shutters? And, if so, are they black or white? Why not take them up a few notches with a glorious color like Christian Dior gray, periwinkle, or Fortnum & Mason green like they do in a mountain town like Lacoste?

Your overhauled shutters will take the exterior of your home from so-so to simply stunning…

Heart of Stone!

I am not always a fan of pale blue when used in an exterior scheme, but these pale blue shutters perfectly accentuate the stone facade of this home in the town of Menerbes in the heart of Provence.

Mellow Yellow!

A jaunty yellow shutter strikes a dramatic contrast behind lush ivy in the charming, vest pocket-sized village of Venasque.

Scarlet Fever!

Here's an extreme version of a colorful facade that John and I spotted in the famous, ochre-hued village of Roussillon. I love the pairing of the burnt-orange facade and the deep red shutters. Wow-ee!
